    Found my first Native American grooved axe!!! Woooot!!

    Hit the newest of my fields, the one that produced the points from my last post. Nabbed a broken quartz point and an unknown material broken tipped blade. On my way out heading back to the car I saw just a small knob of reddish stone sticking out, I hooked it with my rake and pulled a bit and saw the groove! I lost it, happy dance, hootin and hollerin.... My first axe ever! It's about 6" long and 3.5 inches wide. Found in Southern NJ...

    That's a sweet find! That's a deep groove, wonder how long it took to etch that groove in the rock?

    Thx everyone for the kind words. I'm so stoked about it, I've shown everyone I've seen tonight lol. Now I can't wait to get back out there, been finding few points, lotta flakes, and today it was seeming like the field was drying up with finds. Good news is we have rain coming the next 2 days, so I'm in it to win it this week for sure!

    I remember my first one. Unforgettable.

    I sat right down and let the antiquity sink in. It took a while.

    Great find!

    Nice axe head! We don't have too many of those here in the desert ... no wood to cut! :-)

    Congrats fir , I posted my first grooved axe here a few weeks ago , same type of rock but the axe i found is slightly larger , found in the Jersey Cape . The rain and recent plowing of farm fields made it all happen ! I know how you feel , find that old is a once in a lifetime find but like I discovered .. most could give a rat's @$$l . Still a great day when you get one !
